The Communal Place in Singapore, as its name might suggest, is a restaurant that puts conversation and the dining experience of its guests at the heart of its mission. Encouraging diners to trade their mobile phone screens for good, old-fashioned face-to-face communication, The Communal Place understands the important role food can play in bringing people together. An appealing menu with American, French and Japanese influences means guests can choose to order classics like avocado on toast and half-roasted chicken, to more specialised delights such as slow-roasted St. Louis ribs and miso salmon. Situated on Joo Chiat Road in Katong, one of Singapore’s best foodie neighbourhoods, The Communal Place is an ideal spot for those looking for either a causal catch-up with friends, or a satisfying dinner with the family.
Foods are really expensive in my opinion, especially considering the really small portions. But the foods are all tasty. A good place to hang out with friends for a light meal + drinks.
I was served a welcome drink upon arrival, a wonderful gesture. I ordered the pulled pork burger which came with side salad and fries, and the server automatically asked me do I need ice water. A new gem in Katong area!
The boss zanwei and team was really helpful and attended to our every need! Contacted zanwei earlier to request for a corner table with good lighting and privacy so as to organise a hen's party for my dear friend, who's a bride-to-be! Team agreed to let us use the wall for our deco (think golden balloons and lovey dovey words) ^^ Welcome drinks and Tiramisu desserts were given to us on the house as well :)) The bride was really touched and happily surprised! The girls and i were all really happy and enjoyed ourselves thorougly! The deco of the cafe was heartwarming with brown woody colors in the background and christmas tree light ups! Beautiful and cosy place for gatherings! Food was good as well! Thumbs up! Would definitely return :)
